Father Gandrau, editor of The Progress, is one of four priest-writers and 13 laymen and women who will discuss various phases of the teenage- parent story during coming weeks. Writers will include Gene Ford, a partner in the counseling and fund-raising firm of Gene Ford and Associates: Lane Smith, religious editor of The Se- Times; Ed Donohoe, edi.tor of The Washington Teamster; Mrs. John Wiegenstein, instructor at the University of Washington: Dr. Maurice Origines, staff member of Children's Orthopedic Hospital; Mrs. John McDermott, housewife and member of the Se- attle Park Board; Mrs. James Hamilton, assistant professor at Seattle University; Mr. and Mrs. Vilem Sokol, conductor of the Seattle Youth Symphony and Headlines and Deadlines: enote asts Treaty Die teacher at the University of Washington; Dr. Paul O'Hal- leran, chief of staff at Shadel Hospital; John Eckhart, Prog- ress columnist and Mr. and Mrs. Aloysius Mullally, con- tractor. The series which will stress positive suggestions for parents and teenagers rather than con- demn teenage society, will run every other week with a four- week break in December. It will provide discussion mate- rial for those CCD discussion groups which wish to use them. In today's article Father Gandrau emphasizes that the "pressure to conform to the materialistic s t a n d a r d s of modern America is confusing today's Christian parent . . . "The vast majority of our modern social mores are based on sheer materialism and most of these new cultural patterns are foisted upon the American public either in the name of Christianity or Democracy." In stating the problem, the editor of The Progress makes clear that "this article and those that follow promise to give parents no pat solution to their problems--but rather to stimulate thought and discussion . . . "You in the intimacy of your discussion groups and the pri- vacy of your own conscience must find your own solutions. You alone can apply the prin- ciples and ideas gleaned for this series to your own family situation . . " Georgetown U To Cite Emperor Halle Selassie WASHINGTON, Sept. 23 (NC) --Emperor Halle Selassie I of Ethiopia will be awarded an honorary degree by George- town University October 2 when the ruler is here for a visit with President Kennedy. Georgetown trained the first Peace Corps group to be as- signed to Ethiopia. The group of 275 corpsmen is now in the schools of the nation as teach- ers and administrators. A Georgetown spokesman said Rev. Edward B. Bunn, S.J., will confer the degree of doctorate of humane letters on the Em- peror at a private ceremony. The Emperor will be cited for his efforts to improve educa- tion in his country, the spokes- man said. The citation will be read by Rev. Lucien Matte, S.J., a French Canadian Jesuit now president of the University of Sudbury, Ont. Father Matte served 17 years as rector and superior at the University-Col- lege in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital. Bishops of the World Assemble For Council OPENING OF THE SECOND SESSION of Vatican Council II Sunday, Sept. 29, wiU bring together more than 2,000 cardinals, archbishops and bishops, who, with the heads of religious orders and certain others, constitute the Fathers of the Council. This picture, taken on the occasion of the inauguration of the first session, shows the council hall, the nave of St. Peter's Basilica specially adapted to the purposes of the meeting. The archbishops and bishops are already in their seats. The cardinals of the Church are fil- ing into their seats in the right foreground of the picture. Behind the cardinals, the late Pope John XXIII is being car- ried in procession on the ceremonial chair. A temporary altar, at which Mass is celebrated daily to open council de- liberations, is seen in the center of the aisle at the bottom of the picture. Simpler ceremonies are planned for the opening of the second session Sunday. By George N. gromer, Ph.D. The long - expected event finally happened Tuesday when the U.S. enate ratified the limited nu- clear test ban treaty. The main point of interest in the foregone conclusion was the number of senators who would vote against ratification. The 19 who opposed it. ll Demo- crats and eight Republicans, were a few more than were xpected. The number would undoubt- edly have been larger, but speeches and strategy by Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R.-Ill.) and Sen. Henry M Jackson (D.- Wash.) turned the tide and as- sured success for ratification. The 80 Senators who voted for the Moscow treaty not only nrovided enough votes to meet required two-thirds me- but overshot the mark by 14. Now that the die has been cast, one can only ardently hope that it will not operate to the disadvantage or per- haps the weakening of our national security, even though it may not be expected to produce any beneficial re- sults. But one cannot help reflect- ng that this is truly a Moscow invention, and if that be true, there is little doubt but that the Soviets have something to gain from it. That it may correctly be called the Moscow Treaty be- came obvious from speeches in the United Nations and articles the Soviet press, claims have neither been re- futed nor challenged. Much as one might regret the Senate's action, the fact re- mains that it was virtually com- pelled to take it. There was lit- tle else to do, inasmuch as 102 governments had added their signatures to the document even before any of the three prin- had approved it. s unprecedented action was obviously contrived to force the U.S. Senate to respond favorably, once the treaty had been initialed and then signed in Moscow. The incongruous aspect is that, while claiming credit for the treaty, the Soviet Union has not yet finally ratified it. The M-member Presidium of (Continued on Page 5) last October. His Holiness Pope Paul VI, accompanied by the Cardinals, is to enter the council chamber in the great nave of St. Peter's basilica in procession. But the arch- bishops, bishops, abbots and heads of religious orders will simply enter St. Peter's and take their places, Last fall all the council Fathers preceded Pope John XXIII in a solemn procession through St. Peter's Square. The program for the resumption of the council was disclosed in an official summons sent out, as is customary, by the Prefect of Apostolic Cere- monies, Archbishop Enrico Dante. The opening of the session is set for 9 a.m., Rome time (4 a.m. EDT). Inside the basilica, the rites will begin when the Pope kneels at the Altar of the Confession and intones the Vent Creator Spiritus, hymn invoking the aid of the Holy Spirit. Then Mass will be of- fered by Eugene Cardinal Tis- serant, Dean of the Sacred Col- lege of Cardinals. September 29 is Michael- mas, the principal feast of St. Michael the Archangel in the West, and the Mass of the feast will be offered instead of that of the Sunday. Following the Mass. the Pope is to remove his cope and don Mass vestments. Then the coun- cil Fathers will offer their "obedience" to him as he sits upon a throne. After the pro- fession of Faith, Pope Paul is scheduled to give an allocution. At the end of this talk. he will impart his solemn blessing and the rites will be over. Little Change In Council Hall The bishops will find little changed in the council hall in St. Peter's. For the past 10 months the great banks of seats that line both sides of the basilica's nave have been blocked from the pub- lic, which has been forced to funnel around into the side aisles of the huge church to reach the main altars. The seats were left as they had been on the opening day of the Second Vatican Council Oc- tober I1. 1962, because to dis- mantle them last December and l:ebuild them agfiin to be,ready for the second session S opening on September 29 would have been extravagantly expensive. Only once since the coun- cil's first session closed have the seats been occupied. That was the day when the late Pope John XXIII was award- ed the Balzan Peace Prize by Italian President A n t o n i o Segni. That day the rows were filled with ambassadors, n o b I e s, statesmen and scholars who had Pope Plans To Select Curia nmtef'Rwrmh:reelate Round.The-Clock Members On Worldwide Basis Guard ofSt. Peter's Since the first session of the Council ended last December 8 (Complete text of address VATICAN CITY, Sept. 21 -- His Holiness Pope Paul VI has announced he will simplify and de- centralize t h e Roman curia, the Church's central ad- ministrative body. Pope Paul said the curia has "grown ponderous with its own venerable age." The Pope announced his plan to the cardinals, priests and" laymen of the curia at a spe- cial audience.

Member's will receive what the Pope called an "ecumenical" education in preparation for the curs work. Local bishops will take over functions now performed by the curia which can be handled more efficiently on a local basis. Local bishops may be brought into the curia. Pope Paul stated: "And We shall say more: Should the ecumenical council show a desire of seeing some representatives of the episcop- to Roman Curia Page 7) head of the Church in the study and responsibility of ecclesias- tical government, the curia will surely not oppose it." The Pope spoke in the Hall of Benedictions over the front porch of St. Peter's Basilica. Members and workers of the Curia--from cardinals to ,ypists --filled the vast room, which is as long as St. Peter's is wide. Pope Paul began his 3,000- word speech with a tribute to the Curia. He said he had brought the Curia members together in an audience to give them all his "cordial and the Roman Curia for many years.

He turned then to the ecu- menical council now under way: He said it had been desired by "a Pope to whom in fact the spontaneous acclamations of the public voice apply the Gos- pel words about the forerunner of Christ: 'There was a man sent by God whose name was John.'

Arch- bishop John J. Krol of Phila- delphia said here. (Reports circulated some months ago that proposals made by the Catholic Univer- sity faculty for consideration by the council preparatory commissions had not been for- warded to Rome by university officials.) "Any reports to the contrary notwithstanding, such proposals were made and are a matter of record." Archbishop Krol told the Canon Law Society of America 25th annual meeting. He said the recommenda- tions of the Catholic Univer- sity faculty "are found on pages 615 to 632 in the second part of volume four of the first series" of council docu- ments. Archbishop Krol, an under secretary of the council, said the Roman curia welcomes in- formation and suggestions re- lating to proposed changes in Church law.

Columbus Day Designated WASHINGTON, Sept., 20 (NC) --President Kennedy has de- signated October 12 as Colum- bus Day commemorating 'the 471st anniversary of the sight- ing of the New World by Chris- topher Columbus.

The Western Washington me- tropolis of 150200 now has an open housing ordinance, mak- ing it a criminal offense to dis- criminate because of r ac e, creed or color against those who have the opportunity to live where they have the abil- ity to pay. The emancipation of the hu- man rights of members of minority races in Tacoma was enacted late Tuesday night af- ter a stormy seven-hour debate in the crowded City Council chamber. Passage of the vote was 7-2. The approval of the open housing ordinance, urged by church, labor and other civic leaders months ago, was also significant in that it did come to a vote Tuesday. The road to victory for the "open housers" MSGR. E, J. McFADDEN has been at times long, futile and frustrating but always, on their part, peaceful. But encouraging words Tues- day helped the passage. Among those speaking in favor of the ordinance was Rt. Rev. Msgr. Edward J. McFadden, pastor of St. Patrick's Parish in Tacoma. Said the rural dean of the west- ern deanery: "We are not here to grant any rights of any kind to any people. Neither do the words, tolerance or discrimination, need be mentioned. The peo- ple primarily concerned here have rights--rights granted by no state or political power, rights granted by the Supreme Being Who bestowed them as an intrinsic quality of' every human being created in His likeness, rights w h i c h the basic concept of our govern- ment declares inalienable."

Danger of fire is present. Two small changes will be noted by council Fathers who attended the first session. A buzzer has been installed on the table of the council presi- dency so that the presiding cardinal can use it to indicate when a speaker's allotted I0 minutes are up instead of using the previous less effec- tive system of ringing a hand bell. Also, the tables of the presi- dency have been shifted to the side to give an unobstructed view of the Altar of the Confes- stun and to provide more room for the recently expanded board of presidents.
